I made this mohair and bamboo silk shawl for a Christmas gift. It’s a basic granny square stitch and only took a few.days to make.

Knotty Scarf

I created this scarf using 4 different kinds of yarn and no pattern. The stitches are only single and half double crochet.  I made it while attending the Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat held in November 2014 at the Blue Ridge Assembly Retreat in Black Mountain NC.

New yarns

Went to a great yarn shop / bookstore on Hilton Head Island called the Courtyard and last night started on making another wall hanging. The shop website is http://thecourtyardhhi.com. so if you’re ever there I highly recommend you check it out!

Quick corkscrew scarf

I crocheted this scarf in no time. The main part is half double crochet with a Q hook the to give it the corkscrew effect I did the last two rows in single crochet with smaller hooks.

Tunisian Crochet Wall Hanging

 

 

 

This is a wall hanging I made in a basic Tunisian crochet stitch.  I made it from an Italian wool and stained the wood to go with the tones on the yarn.  I also added hanging brackets to the back of the top so it could be easily hung on the wall.  I might have to do more of these!

Striped scarf

This is a jumble of nylon, silk, cotton, merino wool, and microfiber. It turned very bumpy but soft from the sublime merino wool. See photos for yarns used. I also used a bamboo 8mm hook and the stitches are all half double crochet.
